Each Friday we try and make a dinner that is fun and a real crowd pleaser...to celebrate the end of the week and beginning of the weekend. So here is a great and easy fiesta chicken taco soup that is my absolute favorite slow cooker recipe.
TGIF Fiesta Chicken Taco Soup
2 - 15 oz cans of black beans, drained and rinsed
16 oz can tomato sauce
10 oz frozen corn package
2 - 10 oz cans of tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
12 oz can or bottle of beer
1 small onion, diced
1 package taco seasoning
2 boneless chicken breasts
Shredded Cheddar Cheese (we use 2% milk type)
Light Sour Cream
Crushed Baked Tortillas
Sliced Scallions (optional)
Sliced Olives (optional)
Minced Cilantro (optional)
Place the first 7 ingredients in the slow cooker and mix well. Place chicken breasts on top of the ingredients and cover the slow cooker. Cook on high 4-5 hours, or low 8-10 hours. Remove the chicken and cool on a cutting board while you prepare the cheese, sour cream and crushed tortilla chips. Once chicken is cool, shred or cut up very fine, mix back into soup.
Serve soup in bowls, and let the kiddos do their own toppings!
